One of the most fantastic hikes I have ever been on in my life and not far off the main road going through Banff. There is an extension (overnight ) I want to try sometime.

Parker Ridge which is a popular/easier hike is right across the highway, do that one as well as you get some awesome views and is only about a 2 hour up and down. Wilcox Pass: Nice flowers and views as you do a moderate climb for a 1.5 miles than a fairly steep hike for the last 1 mile up to the pass. Bring the binoculars, once you get to the pass watch the slopes for Big Horns and Goats, saw both on our hike!

Did this trail in middle of July, really enjoyed it. Very peaceful at the top maybe 5 people up there in the middle of the day, as most people stop half way to get great view of athabasca glacier. Unfortunately there was no wild life at top, but wouldn't pass this any time

This is my favorite trail. The views are amazing and once your up top make sure you continue onto Tangle Creek.( You'll need two vehicles to do this) Make sure you look for the cairns and keep them to your left over the rock slides.

4 of us strapped on snow shoes and trekked up Wilcox Pass in mid April 2007 and it was an amazing adventure...we had blue sky and deep snow with warm temps...snow shoeing was good and the views were spectacular!
